Each term a student successfully completes a semester of thesis units (6.ThM)–in which they have submitted the thesis proposal or are in the process of writing the thesis–they will receive a grade of J (satisfactory). During the semester that students submit a thesis for the MEng degree, their supervisor will provide the undergraduate office with a final letter grade. Incompletes are not granted for 6.ThM.
If a student fails to submit a thesis proposal within the first term of the MEng Program, the Undergraduate Office will record a grade of U (unsatisfactory). Thesis supervisors may also request a grade of U if students do not make satisfactory progress on the thesis project.
My Master’s thesis was granted 9/10. It was the highest score even given for a thesis since the progam was founded (8 years sonner). How can I highlight it in my resume without looking ostentatious? Thanks!
Great mark and well done! However, this is hard to mention without looking a little ostentatious as you say, so it’s probably better to just include your overall degree result. Presumably if you got such a high mark for your thesis, you would have attained a distinction for your degree. If you did not do so and attained a pass or merit, and you include your thesis mark, this could raise questions as to why you ended up getting a lesser mark in your degree. If you did get a distinction overall – then congratulations – and that mark would speak for itself. If you really do want to include it, do so in the most minimalist way, such as Thesis – Thesis Title (9/10). Supervisor – Dr XX XXXX.
